This is now an
archive page: Unfortunately I've had to discontinue
carrying instruments from Naeem Sitarmaker. Left
here for your viewing, if you see a design you like
it's easily made by one of our newer makers, just
let me know!
This beautiful sitar features a solid mahogany
tumba and extensive carvings, beatiful penwork
etched over faux mother of pearl and ebony bridges with
double cut slots for 1st and 2nd strings. Well made
geared tuners for the main strings and hardwood
sympathetic pegs. .... the
headstock is designed for ease of tuning. Has a sturdy jack
with built in transducer which we can upgrade per
your requirements to a high end transducer or humbucker,
etc. with steel string retrofit. Comes with a
fiberglass flight case. Has a half open jawari,
nice resonance from the sympathetics and
excellent fitting all around. Acoustic or electric,
this instrument sounds great either way!
Naeem comes from the
oldest family of instrument makers in Miraj and
makes a wide variety of instruments, we work with
him closely on custom pieces and this is the first
of this design. This sitar has
been air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to
preserve its quality. Please consider this if
comparing to other instruments.
